Huntington City Readies for Summer Events


By Julie Johansen

Huntington City Council’s regularly scheduled meeting was on Wednesday, May 15. All council members and Mayor Norton were in attendance. A business license for Scoggin’s Big Game Hunt (guiding business) was approved.

Council member Gloria Wilson presented the bids for the curb concrete work for the corner of Highway 31 and 200 West. Two bids had been received, Riley Construction and Los Aviles. These had been submitted to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), along with pictures of the current condition showing the needed work.

Mayor Norton emphasized what a busy time it is for the city getting the streets, parks and yard cleaned, as well as the cemetery ready for Memorial Day. He also cautioned safety practice regarding the recent accidents on Main Street. He thanked the city workers, maintenance, office, city council and appointed personnel for their continued service to Huntington City.

Roni Torrey, City Treasurer, reported on the conference she had recently attended. She noted an increase in URS, State Retirement System costs. She also gave some information regarding the use of Venmo. Torrey had been advised at the conference that it was very important to get to know your local government officials and notifying them about feelings on the actions of the legislature. She also spoke about the funds available for housing developers.

The damaged sign by BK’s Stop and Shop has been redesigned by the Emery County Travel Bureau. The city will pay for it and then be reimbursed by the bureau.

During council and department reports, upcoming activities were reported. The Fire Department Motorcycle Run is slated for Saturday, May 18. The City Youth Council will meet Friday May 16 at 4 p.m. to help plant flowers in the city planters, and the Heritage Rodeo Queen contest will be June 10.
